Queen Anne’s Lace is a wildflower which grows along the country roads where we live in the Pacific Northwest. It’s a versatile flower which some consider to be an invasive and noxious weed. It’s amazing that something so delicate, romantic and beautiful can be considered so evil. Of course, there are benefits too – it all depends on who you are talking too!
During summer, the plant produces beautiful flowers that form a carpet of hundreds of tiny white florets. Although the first flush of Queen Anne’s Lace are gone, I recently found a few blooming along a local roadside where I captured this photograph. It had a little bumble bee visiting when I snapped the shot.
I wish that I had some scissors or shears with me so that I could of brought some home to use in my vases. Lara of Air Kiss had my idea too and she captured some beautiful photographs of these lacy flowers. We literally swooned when we saw her Queen Anne’s Lace displayed in Aqua Blue Jars …
When Queen Anne’s Lace is combined with white linens and dishes they create a perfectly romantic table setting for a wedding.
You really can’t deny the romance which these
native European wildflowers display…can you?
